How can we better understand the nuances of U.S. foreign policy in our ever changing world?

From Northern Afghanistan to the halls of the White House, Zalmay Khalilzad has had a front seat view to the tumultuous events of recent times. His steady hand has helped shaped American policy on the international stage, in the United Nations, and as Ambassador to Iraq and Afghanistan. His latest book The Envoy: From Kabul to the White House, My Journey Through a Turbulent World chronicles his experiences under three presidential administrations with candid behind-the-scenes insights.

In this fascinating discussion during an IVY Idea’s Night in Chicago, Khalilzad argues that America needs an intelligent, effective foreign policy, informed by long-term thinking, and supported by bipartisan commitment.
